John Constantine has literally been to Hell and back. When he teams up with a policewoman to solve the mysterious suicide of her twin sister, their investigation takes them through the world of demons and angels that exists beneath the landscape of contemporary Los Angeles.
Memorable, crazy movie
A Major Disappointment
When a movie has you begging for it to end not even half way through it's pure crap. We've all seen this movie and this characters millions of times, nothing new in it. Don't waste your time.
Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.
Never seen movie like that.Repeating on regular bases since highschool.I don't think there will be another constantine ever.I request sir Francis Lawerence to make such movie just one more time.I dont like new movies much much more now a days though
ConstantineAlong an intriguing concept comes a promising script which Constantine may not be able to offer since the screenplay isn't gripping enough but still hits its mark.
Okay, I haven't seen the comics/graphic novels this is based on. I've seen the TV show with Matt Ryan and I've heard that it comes much close to presenting the true original Constantine than Keanu Reeves does.That being said, when I got around to finally seeing this I was pleasantly surprised. Reeves does a competent job, but I think the movie is very much buoyed by Rachel Weisz playing the unwillingly psychic detective and her unfortunate sister and by other characters in the ensemble, notably Tilda Swinton playing a very "complex" and other- worldly Gabriel and Peter Stormare doing a bang-up job as Lucifer himself.The movie has a lot of special effects and in my opinion they are all pretty good, and the action is varied enough and persistent enough that you neither get bored waiting for it nor get bored in the midst of it.In the course of suspending your disbelief you have to accept that God is pretty much a stickler for rules (about suicides, e.g.) and yet is enough into dualism that he is willing to give the devil's side a sporting chance at winning the game if he plays his hand right. But this is far from the only movie with such conventions. I don't claim that this movie has tons of subtle character development or deep theological truths, but I found it enjoyable. More enjoyable than a lot I've seen.
Why is the rating below 7. It should not be, it is definitely an 8+.The plot is as amazing as any of the Nolan's movie. People who have rated less for this movie, definitely were not able to understand the story. This movie also explains few facts about Christianity which are not known to non-Christians.I would recommend this movie to all real-cinema lovers.
